Fire the Saddle

Fire the Saddle Fire the Saddle is made up of five native Kentuckians. Tory Fisher (guitar, vocals), Mick Sullivan (guitar, banjo, vocals), Rob Collier (bass), Joey Burchett (mandolin, fiddle), and Jason Bemis Lawrence (drumset) have been crafting and crooning in their hometown of Louisville since 2001, much to the satisfaction of their large and loyal audiences.

Drawing on such influences as the Band, Gillian Welch, John Hartford, Freakwater, and Neil Young, Fire the Saddle has blended it all into an original and refreshing sound. As soft and sweet as they are rebellious and rockin’, the band’s songs of friendship, love, and joy perfectly balance others of grief, loneliness, and love on the rocks.

Fire the Saddle’s November 2004 Mixed Media appearance spotlights tunes from the group’s sophomore album, Four Feet Off the Ground.
